Food waste is one of the great challenges of the retail chain, and therefore, we have developed some initiatives and improved some processes, such as strategic management of inventory of goods and aware consumption incentive.
Learn about our projects for dealing with this theme:
Donation of fruits and vegetables – Over 20 years ago, we launched the “Partnership against waste” Program. It consists in donating products proper for consumption, but in inadequate aesthetic conditions for sale, to partner social institutes of the GPA Institute. We have a partnership with the Connecting Food startup, which ensures monitoring of indicators of donations of fruit and vegetables sold in our stores, bringing more accuracy and control on what is donated (quantity and volume) and to whom it is destined (social institutions).
Products Close to Expiration – We have destined a specific shelf for products close to expiration, offering items close to the expiration date at a discount.
